Thumbnail image for NBA-Logo.png Last week, official measurements for the 60 prospects who attended the NBA Combine in Chicago were  released, but we didn't yet know how the aspiring draftees stacked up athletically. That changed on Tuesday.

Though five of the attendees - including Anthony Davis - elected to sit running, jumping and lifting drills out, we still have the results of 55 players to peruse from Draft Express, including five former Kentucky Wildcats. There are some interesting and impressive numbers all over the place, but let's take a look at how the five UK guys measured up:

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Vertical jump - 35.5 inches
Vertical reach - 11 feet, 8 inches
No-step vertical - 32 inches
No-step vertical reach - 11 feet, 4.5 inches
3/4 court sprint - 3.16 seconds (3rd among all participants)
Lane agility drill - 11.77 seconds
Bench press reps (185 lbs.) - 6

Terrence Jones
Vertical jump - 34.5 inches
Vertical reach - 11 feet, 9.5 inches (t-7th among all participants)
No-step vertical - 29.5 inches
No-step vertical reach - 11 feet, 4.5 inches
3/4 court sprint - 3.40 seconds
Lane agility drill - 11.57 seconds
Bench press reps (185 lbs.) - 12

Marquis Teague
Vertical jump - 40.5 inches (t-2nd among all participants)
Vertical reach - 11 feet, 5 inches
No-step vertical - 32.5 inches
No-step vertical reach - 10 feet, 9 inches
3/4 court sprint - 3.19 seconds (t-4th among all participants)
Lane agility drill - 10.65 seconds (6th among all participants)
Bench press reps (185 lbs.) - 8

Doron Lamb
Vertical jump - 33.5 inches
Vertical reach - 11 feet
No-step vertical - 29 inches
No-step vertical reach - 10 feet, 7.5 inches
3/4 court sprint - 3.41 seconds
Lane agility drill - 11.12 seconds
Bench press reps (185 lbs.) - 2

Darius Miller

Vertical jump - 37 inches
Vertical reach - 11 feet, 6 inches
No-step vertical - 33 inches (t-9th among all participants)
No-step vertical reach - 11 feet, 2 inches
3/4 court sprint - 3.31 seconds
Lane agility drill - 11.34 seconds
Bench press reps (185 lbs.) - 14

A couple quick observations. First, Teague is clearly very athletic. His jumping numbers are off the charts and he's among the fastest and quickest of all the players in attendances. Also, Miller is - as most of us who watched him for four years know - sneakily athletic. His vertical was actually better than MKG's, though Kidd-Gilchrist was one of the fastest players, which is no surprise considering his prowess in the open floor.
